We demand a layered, collective, and equitable approach to the pandemic - People's CDC

We need a CDC that prioritizes the health of the people, not the health of big business. We need a People’s CDC. And so we formed one.
We’re epidemiologists and physicians, artists and biologists. We’re children, parents, and grandparents. We’re living with Long Covid and losses of loved ones. We’ve come together with a common anger at our government’s disregard for social and public health responsibilities. Though many of us have just met, we inherit hundreds of years of resistance traditions.
We’re epidemiologists, nurses and physicians, artists and biologists. We have come together with a common anger at the US government’s handling of Covid.
The People’s CDC is a coalition of public health practitioners, scientists, healthcare workers, educators, advocates and people from all walks of life working to reduce the harmful impacts of COVID-19. We provide guidance and policy recommendations to governments and the public on COVID-19, disseminating evidence-based updates that are grounded in equity, public health principles, and the latest scientific literature.
Speaking as an individual, People’s CDC reports automatically make me feel less alone and less weird for continuing to take basic steps to protect myself and everyone I encounter from COVID. Like social distancing, wearing masks in public spaces, and keeping up to date with vaccinations.
